Free Internet in public places across Europe thanks to WiFi4Eu

Thanks to an agreement reached yesterday between the Presidency of the European Council, which this semester touches in Malta, and the European parliament, early Europeans can surf for free in public places. The project is called WiFi4Eu and provides for the creation of a multilingual portal that will provide a fast and secure connection to users.

This will reduce the  digital divide and European citizens will be encouraged to use the digital services. For the moment has been called the broader framework in the coming months it will be established budget. They should be allocated about 120 million euro that were intended to involve local communities from 6000 to 8000 and to ensure around 50 million daily connections.

The installation of the equipment will be financed by the European Union through vouchers while maintenance and monthly Internet fees will be borne by public authorities. The communities that intend to participate in  WiFi4Eu  must undertake to provide an extremely high speed connection for at least three years.
